UVO

UVO is the first freely rotating, 360° vibration damper to apply cutting-edge vibration dampening technology to minimizing disruptive ski vibration. The terrain or surface below the ski inevitably generates vibrations, which in turn set the shovel in particular into motion in all directions. This significantly disrupts the smoothness of the ski-ride, and makes it harder to hold an edge. The revolutionary UVO technology counteracts this, with proven dampening or reduction of vibrations in the horizontal and vertical directions as well as along the length of the ski. The ride becomes smoother and the edge grip improves.

Powered by Titanium

The titanium setup makes the ski agile and dynamic. Especially friends of a hard, fast and aggressive riding style benefit from the quick response of this construction.

 

Racefinish

For a better grip in fast and tight turns the Völkl World Cup skis come with a special race finish edging. While the SL models feature 0,7° on the base and 87,6° on the side, the GLS models come with a 0,8° base and 87,6° on the side.

 

Full Sidewall

Direct and strong powertransmission with full length sidewalls.

P-Tex 4500

A sintered, ultra-high molecular polyethylene base with an extremely high density. Besides a great wear resistance and perfect wax absorption the P-Tex 4504 is extremely fast and exclusively used on our top of the line and race models. The material has been upgraded with special additives to make it thermal and electro-conductive and proves its qualities with premium glide and maximum speed in races.

 


Speedwall Multi Layer Woodcore

The side wall is laminated to extremely stable layers of wood on the sides of the sandwich core. In combination with a more flexible, lighter wood built into the center of the sandwich core construction provides numerous advantages: 
The hardwood part immediately adjacent to the sidewall effects a higher power transmission, improves the edge grip and supports the edge against external forces. 
The low weight of the softwood part in the middle of the ski brings more agility and maneuverability and reduces overall ski weight. The combination of both wood types running through the entire ski length contributes to an optimal distribution of the ski stiffness increasing the steering precision. It is the first and only sidewall/core technology intended for aggressive on-piste and racing use and capable of delivering the victory and defeat, even if it is measured in hundredths of seconds.

 

Tip Rocker

Only bends upwards in the shovel area, while the middle and tail of the ski feature a camber shape
